Safety is the paramount concern with WHMIS. Once you have completed your training, you know your workplace responsibilities. You may still be wondering what your employer must do to keep you safe.
Your employer must follow several guidelines to ensure workplace safety:
- All controlled products must be labeled appropriately before using, storing, handling, or disposing of those products in the workplace.
- SDS sheets must be readily available, and your employer must train you to follow them.
- Educate you about storing, handling, and disposing of controlled products.
- They must provide you with Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to handle hazardous products safely.
